2010 Boutari, Skalani - Greece


Grapes: 50% Kotsifali, 50% Syrah
Alcohol Content: 14.0% Vol

Deep red wine with an intense bouquet, dominated by aromas of red forest fruit, sweet ageing aromas, like cinnamon, clover, cocoa, matched harmoniously with the aromas of oak barrels and roasted nuts. An exquisite structure, rich body, volume, greasiness, a long duration in taste and aroma.

2010 Boutari, Merlot Xinomavro


Grapes: 100% Moschofilero
Alcohol Content: 11.0% Vol

This blend of Xinomavro, northern Greece's most noble variety, with merlot produces a harmonius red wine with a lush aroma of chocolate, coffee, pepper, cinnamon and a fine oak. The body is intense and full of plum flavors, red fruit marmalade and berry with a balanced finish.

2008 Boutari, Grand Reserva - Greece


Grapes: 100% Xinimavro
Alcohol Content: 13.5% Vol

Deep red colour with chestnut coloured tints. Complex bouquet, with prevailing aromas of dried fruit, like tomato and fig. Further examination will reveal notes of wood and police. A robust wine with a rich body, which maintains an insistent but calm aggression, due to its tannins.
